Visby harbor, Sweden

Finnair, Finland's flag carrier, will launch flights between South Korea's Incheon International Airport and Sweden's vacation destinations this summer.

The airliner will operate flight services linking Incheon with Umea and Lulea in northern Sweden, Norrkoping in eastern Sweden and Visby in the country's largest island of Gotland.

Finnair will provide daily flights from Incheon to Umea, Lulea and Norrkoping, and three flights a week to Visby.

Visitors will be able to travel to cultural towns and cities via Finland's capital of Helsinki.

Sweden's Lulea is widely known for its UNESCO World Heritage-designated Gammelstad Church Town, while Visby is also a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Norrkoping holds Sweden's biggest music event -- Bravalla Festival -- annually. It will hold the festival between June 25 and 27 this year.
